Hurricane Season goes until when? Did you know that the hurricane season is June – November? That is over half of the year! As summer ends most people give less thought to hurricanes, but we still have two months left for 2020. Reports came out in late May from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA, that they expected 2020 to be a busy year for storm activity. With the way 2020 was going, no one is surprised. But, 2020 has now tied the 1916 record for the most mainland landfalls in a season. On top of that, NOAA publishes the names for all the storms before the season starts, one for each letter of the alphabet and we have already used all those names!
While CCCS is not a weather reporting agency, we do care about your financial forecast and an unexpected damage bill or evacuation can cause havoc for your financial goals. At CCCS we want you to prepare for that evacuation in every way, including with finances. Being prepared for a hurricane and evacuation means more than having money set aside; it also means knowing how to protect your identity, how to access your money, and what your insurance covers. That might sound like a lot of work, but fear not! CCCS has created a one-page guide to hurricane preparedness. This guide walks you through saving for the evacuation, safeguarding your identity, knowing the numbers of your creditors, and reviewing your insurance policy.
Use our Hurricane Preparedness Tool (below) and share it with your friends and family. As always, if you would like to set up a time to speak with one of our counselors about your financial goals or questions please give us a call at 912-691-2227.
